A Little Gem of a White Burgundy
"Readers will have a hard time finding a more polished, harmonious white Burgundy for the money." Antonio Galloni, the Wine Advocate 8/12.
You got that right Antonio!!!
We fell in love with this wine on our two tasting trips to Maison Louis Jadot over the past two years.
Yes we are both talking about the Marsannay Blanc 2010!!!
This little gem of a White Burgundy is scrumptious in the 2010 vintage.
But don’t just take our word on it, check-out one of the most compelling reviews we have ever seen for an under $40 bottle of White Burgundy.
“A gorgeous wine, the 2010 Marsannay is refined and utterly impeccable. Readers will have a hard time finding a more polished, harmonious white Burgundy for the money. Citrus, white peaches and crushed rocks are some of the many nuances that flow from this taut, focused Marsannay. Clean, saline notes frame the textured, inviting finish. In 2010, the Marsannay was aged partly in steel, which contributes to the wine’s freshness. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.
Once again, I tasted with Jacques Lardiere and Frederic Barnier during a marathon session that lasted several hours. Lardiere has been on a whirlwind tour celebrating his last year at Jadot before his long-announced retirement, but I will believe he is stepping down when I see it. Lifers like Lardiere simply don’t retire. As for the wines, Jadot’s 2010s are unqualified successes across the board. Of course, the wines from the most prestigious appellations are often compelling, but frankly I find just as much joy in discovering the many fabulous Burgundies from unheralded villages that are sprinkled throughout this portfolio. Lardiere and Barnier first thought 2010 was better for reds than whites, but that gap has narrowed recently in their opinion…” Antonio Galloni, the Wine Advocate 8/12.
It doesn’t get much better than this!!!
This little beauty is due to arrive later this month and we highly recommend stocking up on this one.
